convincedtobeconfused asked: So I just finished the finale and I'm really sad. Can I please have a reason to be happy?

#1 - Most of the finale was written in 2006 which is why is so odd that Robin “lost touch” with everyone just because she was traveling (among other things) because in 2014 I can video chat from my phone with a lot of people around the world and I can in fact update a blog from it too. They definitely did not account for technology and social media (and medical advances cause those keep happening too) when writing the finale which leads us to believe that some excuses would not be valid for the show to end like it did. Meaning that the finale was written for the 2005 or 2006 gang and not for the characters that we have all watched grow and were super emotionally invested in.

#2 - There is chocolate in the world, and also puppies and cats and Bubbles.

#3 - Parks & Rec is on Netflix and so is Adventure Time

#4 - Once Upon a Time is back and so are a lot of other series (but maybe OUAT will not give you a lot of happy feels)

#5 - We don’t have to wait 8 months between every episode of Doctor Who

#6 - Tumblr, Youtube, Fandoms like Superwholock and communities like Nerdfighteria … maybe just the internet in general.

#7 - This video about the world NOT being so bad. 

#8 - Dancing Little Groot !

Anonymous asked: Personally, Barney and Robin not working out was the reason the finale pissed me off. No matter how many times they said it wouldn't work out, they always came back to each other. They accepted each other's faults and worked together to kind of make it so they wouldn't be a problem in the future. That's what love is. Sure, they're very similar in the fact that they're super independent, but that's what makes them THEM. Couldn't imagine them acting like Lily and Marshall

Dear Anon 
I obviously don’t know who you are, but I love you (not in a weird romantic way but in a I’m glad you exist kind of way)
You are right and that’s why they remind me of that Doctor Seus quote about joining someone in your weirdness and calling it love.

princesspachia asked: I think the most epic ending would have to be this: referring to season 7 ep 17, Lily tells Marshall to pay up (due to their bet) because Robin didnt chose Ted afterall. And, the episode ends with Marshall saying "not yet." well, what if the show ended with Marshall telling Lily " pay up," since Robin and Ted ended up together lol. idk if this makes sense to you but i was thinking about it, and it would be SO EPIC!

I think that actually would have been a nice touch.

strangersparadies asked: I'm from germany and läßt wednesday there was finally the big final on TV and i'm SO DAMN dissapointed, this is Not what i wanted and i thought at the end i should've never watched It :((( what did you think of the final?!

I feel your pain. 
I really do. Im still not over it and it was over months ago.
I don’t think I will ever be over it.
But I obviously like the alternative ending and the fan made alternative better so to me those are the endings. That doesn’t help with the social repercussions of it but it helps my denial.

jesshughes333 asked: Can you make a gif of Robin and Barney hi 5 freeze frame from season 1? :)

No, but I can re-blog one from a friend.
I mostly ask people and they make them or find them and then send them to me. Cause tumblr people are awesome.

Season 9 is on Netflix

But I still don’t think Im emotionally prepared for a whole season about how 2 people are perfect for each other and then for the last episode to happen.
I think I will just re watch it soon up until the end of season 8 do I can keep on writing the lessons cause up till then it was my show, the one I fell in love and obsessed with.
But I figured you all should know about the final season being on Netflix.

before the finale, when the show was still on and i still took it seriously, it always bugged me how basically there were no repercussions after robin broke barney’s heart. they didn’t fight or anything, and as a shipper, i longed for confrontation. but along the way i realized, barney always put her first. his pride and his feelings came second, so much so that when ted asks him “permission” to get back together with her, he only cares about her happiness (also, you know, there’s the fact that he never saw robin as his to give). this is a man whose heart was broken after he and robin had mutually decided to maybe give their relationship a second try, when she - most frankly - was kind of a bitch and brought kevin back to macclaren’s without even giving him a heads up. barney realized robin was his soul mate and broke up with nora, and then his world fell apart. still, he respects robin and her decision, and despite being in the right, he is the one to ask her if they’re still friends, proving to be there for her in a particularly hard time.

mere months later, after being broken up for years and with no signs of them rekindling their relationship, ted abruptly tells an emotionally fragile robin - who just told her fiancé about her infertility and subsequently got dumped - he loves her. he then proceeds to shut her out when she admits she doesn’t reciprocate his feelings, despite her telling him she needs him. 

yes, i believe you are correct. it’s time to play guess the endgame again.

Had to share because for a while there I also realized that the “messed up” guy respected this woman’s wishes more than the “romantic guy” but a lot of people still haven’t realized that.

The Pineapple Incident EXPLAINED!

In this exclusive deleted scene, the most puzzling and long-lingering question from the CBS series is solved!

I personally liked the whole "Oh, and we never found out where that pineapple came from…but it was delicious!” thing they had going on.
Because it was meant to be a mystery and they did said they never found out. But I guess way too many fans asked about it? It looks a little bit forced but at least we have an answer.
